    Description

    Methods are described for making comparative valuations of future fire (or any other) research efforts when the benefits that result from some of the efforts cannot be described in dollars. The process helps research managers and scientists set priorities by using the values and beliefs of skilled fire specialists. The objective is to insure coherent decisions consistent with stated values. The process has application in decision problems faced by all executives and has been tested in a variety of forestry applications.
